Speed: 60 mph
Kumba is a sit down roller coaster with a top speed of 60 MPH located at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, in Tampa, Florida. Kumba is one of the first in a line of multi-inversion coasters (that is, those having six or more inversions) built by B&M, and featured B&M’s first ever diving loop and interlocking corkscrews. It has seven inversions which, in order, are:
1) A 114-foot-tall (35 m) vertical loop, which wraps around the lift hill
2) B&M’s first-ever diving loop
3) Zero-G roll
4) Cobra roll (two inversions that go over the Congo River Rapids bridge)
5) 2 Interlocking corkscrews (also a first for B&M) immediately after the midcourse block brake
“Kumba” means “Roar” in the African Kongo Language. The coaster itself mimics this definition with a distinctive roar that the train produces as it traverses the track. It is not known if this was a design feature or an incidental though appropriate aspect of the ride. Most likely, the cause of this roar is due to the track design. Similar to other Bolliger & Mabillard roller coasters, the track contains a hollow spine and rails, which are known to produce a roaring sound.
